A video interview with founder Tim Spencer

Tim and Andrew SpencerThe possibility that Tim and Heather’s child would inherit retinoblastoma from Tim became a reality with Andrew was born in February 2007.  There was a short period of sadness. Then came the realization that because of their experience battling Tim’s cancer,  they were the perfect parents to help Andrew fight this disease, giving him the best chance to lead a normal life. Today, Andrew has been cancer-free for over three years. The irony of course is that had it not been for Tim’s affliction, there would have been little chance Andrew would have undergone the early-detection procedure for retinoblastoma. One of BeyondRB’s goals is to fund research to develop an easy, affordable early-detection program.
